There was puke all over the bathroom. This seems to be a normal occurrence. Karaoke is fun, but I like to go to the washroom without smelling of vomit.

We stopped by to wait for the Yuk Yuks show. I was surprised by the great service and one of the best beet salads I have ever eaten. My husband also enjoyed his craft beer and wings.

Hooley's is overall very average - average pub food, average prices, average service. It's location is nice, and a good place to hang out with a group of friends for drinks, but if you're looking for delicious food, it's not your best bet.
